A Wall With a Story – DIY Ideas For Your Walls

Ahh, the holidays.  They are quickly approaching, with Thanksgiving just 2 weeks away.  There will be food, fun and family, and of course those guests who hardly make it for a visit any other time of the year.  You want to prepare your house, maybe get the guest bedroom cleaned up a bit, throw some art up on your bare walls…

I’m not going to lie, this totally sounds like me with my holiday stressors.

Do you ever have a hard time coming up with ideas to decorate your house?  I know I do, especially when we are having company around the holidays. 

The walls are the first thing I tackle, but that usually goes hand-in-hand with moving.  Before I even start to think about tablescapes (still perfecting this art) and my front door (wreaths), I must put up my pictures.  I cannot stand to have a plain wall where it can be helped.  That is like a blank canvas: it needs a story to tell. 

There are many unique ways to decorate your walls.  Some people show off family photos with a gallery wall.  Others have really cool art work, or they choose a theme to go with.  Pinterest has become a wealth of inspiration for me.  I love to have a mix of pictures and phrases painted on wood, and some quick DIY decor to tie it all together.

Today, I have a great list of ways to decorate your walls with DIY artwork.  There is literally something to compliment everyone’s taste.   

How about you?  What kind of stories do your walls tell?
